Common Dental Emergencies

Chipped or Broken Teeth

Even if you chip or break a tooth, our team can help repair it quickly. In severe cases, you may require a root canal to clear away debris that have accumulated in your tooth.

If a chipped or broken tooth occurs, wash your mouth out with warm water and apply pressure to the tooth with clean gauze to reduce bleeding. If you find a part of the broken tooth, wrap it in clean, damp gauze and bring it to the dentist.

There can be many reasons why you or someone you know might experience a toothache, but tooth decay is among the most common causes.

We recommend contacting our team to discuss the symptoms of tooth decay and decide which treatment is right for you.

If you or someone you know loses a tooth, place the tooth in milk, warm water, or saline solution and immediately contact our team. We may be able to place the tooth back in its socket within 10 to 30 minutes of it coming out.

New decay, biting or chewing too hard, grinding your teeth, or even physical trauma can all cause a filling to come loose. Missing fillings can leave your tooth vulnerable to bacteria in sensitive places, potentially causing pain.

If this happens to you or someone you know, call our team immediately to get the filling replaced. We will work our hardest to help you as soon as possible.

Accidental tongue and lip bites are common and can cause pain and bleeding. Place clean gauze or cloth on the injured area to reduce the bleeding and use an ice pack to reduce swelling. If your tongue or lip continues to bleed, visit your nearest emergency room.
